On Wednesday and Thursday of this week, I went to directly to the NICU after school. Both days, Lily honored my visit with a good poop. Logically, I assumed, Lily wasn't really pooping because of me, but rather simply at the same time each day. It's logical that she could be on a regular schedule. If this is true, what was her excuse for pooping for me today????
I didn't visit until nearly 8:00 p.m., which is well past what I've done the past few days. When we arrived, Nurse Alicia had Lily changed and wrapped and ready to come out for a cuddle. As soon as I was ready to hold her (and take her out of her isolette all by myself), Lily decided it was time to poop. Not being a fan of holding her while she's a Stink Bug, I decided to change her. And while I was cleaning her tiny hiney, she pooped again. And after I cleaned her again and wrapped her up and carried her to the rocking chair, she pooped again. What exactly is it about me that makes Lily want to poop?!?!
Anyway, on a non-poop related topic, neither Lily nor Charlie seemed to want anything to do with their bottles. Brooke tried to feed both babies this afternoon; Lily didn't take anything and Charlie only took about half. This evening, I tried to feed Lil' but she spent the entire time fussing and fidgeting, and Charlie wasn't much better for Brooke. Still, we're not too worried since neither has been at it long and it takes most babies quite a while to get the hang of bottle-feedings.
Otherwise, there's not too much else to report. Hopefully, tomorrow will be a little more like yesterday with the bottle feedings, just with a little less pooping!
I tried and tried to convince Lily to take her bottle. Nurse Alicia even told her that I was the boss and she should listen to me... Lily didn't buy that at all. I think we all know that Lily is the boss and Brooke is her second-in-command. Charlie and I aren't going to have much rank.
Charlie was happy to be held by his mommy but not so thrilled that she tried to make him work for his food. He prefers it to just appear in his belly with the feeding tube. He's a touch on the lazy side.
